Decision:

RESOLVED that

a)    the undertaking of a public and stakeholder consultation on the Draft Kirkby Town Centre Spatial Masterplan for a period of 3 weeks during March 2020, be approved;

 

b)    the Kirkby Town Centre Spatial Masterplan be approved in principle, subject to delegated authority being granted to the Director of Place and Communities, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Place, Planning and Regeneration, to make minor amendments to the Masterplan prior to adoption.

 

Minutes:

Cabinet were requested to approve the facilitation of a public and stakeholder consultation on the Draft Kirkby Town Centre Spatial Masterplan for 3 weeks commencing Monday, 2nd March 2020.

 

Members considered the alternative option of declining to approve the consultation but this option was not recommended as participation with the public and stakeholders would enable valuable feedback and consequently, the Spatial masterplan would ultimately hold more weight as a material planning consideration in the detailed formulation of subsequent projects where funding will need to be secured.
